and the united states government does not want to be in the position of saying where they are going to set up because it means a thousand other places don't get help. so the focus of the mission is being set by the haitian health ministry itself. but once these patients identified by the health ministry in a particular hospital, maybe a field hospital, the israeli government for instance had a field hospital feeding these ships. once they are in these hospitals, then the professional doctors there, many of them working in concert with haitian doctors make the call based on strict think medical reasons. so today the most critically injured folks are people with crush injuries that had injured them internally so bad over time their organs began to shut down. this is the kind of thing we are seeing on the ship and surgeons are working 24/7. all the operating rooms have been in use virtually since the ship dropped anchor on wednesday morning here. >> i guess the big question is how long can you keep up that pace? >> we received another 86 interpreters today. red cross workers. another 350 doctors

as the office of president of the united states. okay. like i said, not a fan. but michelle in virginia says, things, they were terrible when he took office. ignoring that just isn't fair. it took g.w. bush eight years to get us to the sorry state when we were in when president barack obama was elected. it's foolish to expect that he could correct all of our problems in just 12 months. let's be realistic and not so critical and judgmental of a job most of us would never want to have. and then the recall. the gas pedals have turned into a very sticky problem for the world's largest auto maker. but dave from woodbridge, virginia says, we the media could have handled the story a bit better. what has not been offered is what the public could do if the problem happens to them. and the people, they should know, the cause, it can bring the vehicle to a stop by shifting the automatic transmission into neutral. or depressing the clutch on the manual transmission. and then applying the brakes. once the vehicle exploded or stopped, to turn off the ignition. >>> well, dave, actually, our own, surae chin
